JAKARTA – GAPPI Volunteers chairman Hario Rahadanto claimed that more than 350,000 entrepreneurs were throwing their support behind Prabowo-Gibran, with the majority concentrated around Sumatra, Kalimantan and Java.

“This shows the people’s unrelenting power and will to support Prabowo-Gibran’s presidency. Insya Allah [God willing] we hope the presidential election will conclude in a single round,” Hario said, as quoted by news portal.

Hendy Setiono, deputy head of the “Fanta” campaign team, Prabowo-Gibran’s campaign wing targeting young voters, welcomed the support saying that the GAPPI supporters encompassed not only property developers but also foremen, workers and their families.

Hendy also reiterated Prabowo’s promise of providing 3 million homes for poor citizens, as well as continuing the current government’s property tax-reduction program.

“This [housing program] will surely have a positive impact on the community. The government’s property tax program will also be continued,” he said.

During the final presidential debate on Sunday, Prabowo promised to build 3 million homes for the poor should he win the upcoming election.

Prabowo said that these houses would be built across the country, from cities to villages.

“One million [homes] in villages, 1 million in coastal areas, 1 million in urban areas,” the presidential candidate said in Sunday’s debate.

The final presidential debate featured themes like social welfare and education. Aside from building 3 million homes, Prabowo said he would provide scholarships for 20,000 high school graduates who show a good academic performance.

“We will provide 10,000 high school graduates with scholarships abroad to study medicine, while the other 10,000 will study science, technology, engineering, mathematics, chemistry, biology and physics,” Prabowo said.
